This photography exhibit focuses on the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. It was part of the campaign for African American voting rights, equality and social justice. Marches and rallies resulted in the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was signed into law on August 6.

Selma to Montgomery is curated and circulated by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. The exhibition is made possible, in part, by the City of Birmingham and contributions to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute’s Corporate Campaign.

This exhibit will be at the North Carolina Museum of History from September 3, 2016 through March 5, 2017
